the lost timbre
of dad’s voice

    This brought me right back to summers spent at my childhood home in Warrenpoint, Northern Ireland, when my siblings and I used to play on the beach all day during school holidays. Our father would call us for lunch across the shore wall on Seaview. After his death three years ago, I sometimes try to remember the exact sound of his voice. Thank you for sharing this beautiful haiku.

    Softly stirring, sombrely resonating haiku. Thankyou.
